Dear 100 Hour Board,

Why don't we have Tea every day in America? I mean the event, not the drink.

- Queenie

A: Dear Queenie,
Because this is America. And when it was founded, the people weren't really thrilled about doing anything the British way. That's why we drive on the right side of the road and all that jazz. Having "tea" every day would be a British pasttime, not an American one.

Then again, I would love the siestas that some countries have, when everything closes in the afternoon for a few hours and everyone gets to take a nap...
